This paper deals with the OLTRE project (ISF - DG Migration and Home Affairs, EU) funded for preventing the radicalization of the second-generation of migrants in Italy. This essay aims to study the production of an online communication campaignco-designed by second-generation youths. The four Universities engaged in the project, in order to collect the issues for the campaign made an in-depth sociological research and an interdisciplinary social network analysis. We will present the results of the non-standard field research. Starting from the different dimensions of the risk of radicalization proposed by the kaleidoscopic overview of risk factors (Sieckelinck and Gielen 2018: 5; Ranstorp 2016), we created a topicguide for the in-depth qualitative interviews, then we collected 42 interviews of second generation youths (18-30 years) in 7 Italian towns. Furthermore, we studied the theater performances taped during the laboratories made by second generationyouths collecting narratives, representations, stories and emotions about their representation of the radicalization risk and protection factors. This corpus was used for the social communication campaign to prevent radicalization, engagingthe research participants as key players, co-designing the counter-narrative contents (Institute for Strategic Dialogue, 2015). The paper study also the viral dissemination of the social communication campaign on the social network andthe role of the moderators. ReferencesRanstorp, M. The root causes of violent extremism.
